. this was introduced by senator daniel akaka, along with the ranking member of the oversight committee, elijah cummings. this bill will make three key reforms. the first reform will allow state and local government workers to run for a political office. the hatch act prohibits any of these employees from running in a partisan political election if their job involves federal funding. this creates problems for many government workers who are otherwise well qualified to run for local offices. for example, mr. john grinder had to be fired as police chief of ogden, utah, because he ran for a state senate seat and won. ms. kristen desenzo, an illinois employee, could not run for state clerk because of this barrier. she said i was utterly deflated. it's utter insanity. this will institute less severe penalties for hatch act violations. it requires employees who violate the hatch act to be terminated unless the merit systems protection board unanimously votes for a lesser penalty. john adler, the president of the federal law enforcement officers association, testified that this penalty system is draconian. the

and to improve security. april. >> what are your thoughts about elijah cummings who has to be good friends at the president saying that no deal [inaudible] >> well come i didn't see the specific comments. the president has principles here he intends to stick to, which is that he will not sign an extension of the bush era tax cuts for the top 2%. full stop, he will not sign a bill that extends those tax rates for the top 2%. we can't afford it. it's not a wise economic policy. it's not wise fiscal policy and it would defeat the principle of balance he has embraced so clearly throughout these negotiations. he is fully committed to extending tax cuts for the vast majority of the american people. 90% any wishes the house of representatives would pass the bill tomorrow and he would sign it right away. that is a principle he takes in today's. i don't want to forecast in a pessimistic way because i believe in the president and secretary geithener least we can achieve a compromise here. what that compromise looks like and how he got there are both pretty clear. we just hope that republicans will a
